Area on Hudson was one of New York's most popular nightclubs in the 80s.
Every night hundreds of people waited beyond the velvet ropes for entrance.
Admission wasn't a given.
But in this photo the baldish man in the foreground was headed to the bar to order a cognac and coke. It was his drink. I know, because later Jack Lesko was part-owner with Scottie Taylor at the Milk Bar. He loved the nightlife.
"Ah, the magic of Studio."
He was a little magic himself and I was glad to hear recently from a diamond client that Jack had survived a bout with the Big C.
"Give him my best."
And I meant it.
We are the nightlife.
